Mommy Monday

Mommy Monday New Banner 2

 

This weekend, my thundering horde and I went to Plano, TX to see an amazing Christmas show. As we got to the performance and looked around, I saw all these moms of littles in their cute outfits, perfectly applied makeup, and hair that on point. Then there was me: leggings, hair up in a clip, and a spit up stain on my shoulder. I gotta be honest, being a mom has really taken a number on my personal style (though, I really didn’t have much “style” to begin with, so I guess I can’t blame it on the kids). But, thanks to many Etsy shops, I can let the world know that I wear yoga pants because, kids, thanks to some adorable (and affordable!) tees made for moms!

Every day I’m hustlin’ to the car, to the potty, to the fridge for chocolate milk, and to my kid to catch their “soon-to-be-spit-on-the-floor-food” with my hand. The hustle is SO. FREAKING. REAL. Thanks, GurleyGirlBoutique, for making a shirt to let the world know!

Messy bun? Check. Yoga pants? Check. Baby wipes, Goldfish crackers, nursing pads, and sippy cups? Checkity check check. The GiftedSugar store knows how to make me feel like a star!

This tank has something for every mom…except a double shot of espresso in your coffee to help you keep up with your toddler. The LoveBirdBoutique has your back!

Sometimes you just gotta tell the devil he ain’t gonna wreck your vibe and just keep mommin’! Let everyone know you’re in no mood for their ish with this tee from BirchBearCo!

 

 

Stay fly, Mommas!

Fan Girl Friday!

Happy first Friday of fall, y’all! I don’t know how the weather is where you’re fangirlin’, but here in Oklahoma it STILL feels like summer! I’m ready for hashtag PSL’s and bulky sweaters that cover up my summer of bad decisions. Pretty sure the only thing that can cheer me up is a blog full of nerdy nifties! Oh, look, here’s one now!

Today I’m bringing you geeky goodies from one of my new favorite fandoms that is actually celebrating its fifty anniversary! Its a fandom that will boldly take you where–well, let’s face it–other fandoms have taken you before… but none have looked as good doing it as Captain Picard, amirite?! That’s right, today’s FGF is all about Star Trek!

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s genius, the USPS is launching limited edition stamps! Check ’em out!

Want some simple Star Trek swag to accessorize with?  Then look no further than Etsy shop JewelSculpts! They’ve got a lot of amazingly geeky gear, like this Vulcan salute necklace!

You’re out of your Vulcan mind if you don’t snag this! (<–see what I did there?)

 

Are you raising up future Trekkers? Don’t worry, Mattel has you covered, Geek Mom and Dad! Barbie is getting in on the fun with Kirk, Spock, and Uhura dolls!

Not only that, but Mega Bloks is also releasing Star Trek sets as well! And, bonus! They’re compatible with Legos!

Live long and prosper, fangirls and fanboys!

Fan Girl Friday!

Happy Friday, fangirls and boys! Even though its been a busy week, I have found some nerdy nifties to make your weekend be filled with geeky joy!

 

I’m sure most of you are ECSTATIC that it is finally #PSLseason and that means pumpkin flavored errythang! This year, though, its not just pumpkin that’s making the rounds, but butterscotch as well! M&M’s will be debuting their butterscotch-flavored candies very soon and–good news!–sources say they taste JUST. LIKE. BUTTERBEER!

So even if you can’t get away to Harry Potter World, bust open a bag of these, pop in HP #1 in the DVD player, and don those robes! It’ll be like you’re back at Hogwarts!

 

When I was a kid, I thought I was a bad-a clothing designer because I was a Fashion Plates pro! Now, thanks to an awesome company called Picture This, kids can wear their actual drawings/designs!

Picture This was founded by a mother who created a dress designed by her daughter. Her little one loved the dress and lit up when she told people, “I’m wearing my imagination!” Now kids everyone can do the same!

 

This year, Star Trek is celebrating their 50th anniversary! There’s a lot of limited-edition gear coming out, but I think my favorite is from RockLove Jewelry! Just check out this GORGEOUS Starfleet ring!

starfleet-ring

Not only do they have awesome jewelry for Trekkers, but they TONS of fandoms to choose from!

 

And speaking of a-DORK-able jewelry, I’ve found an awesome new Etsy shop full of accessories for fangirls! PeachesandPebbles Shop has a great selection, including hard-to-find fandoms like Totoro!

SO. FREAKING. CUTE!

Fan Girl Friday!

Happy Friday, peeps! I realized this week I haven’t done a Fan Girl Friday in TWO WEEKS! I know; bad, blogger! But I’ve found some geeky goodies and nerdy news to help you kick off your V-Day weekend!

 

A few weeks ago, I was out running errands and saw the COOLEST window cling! So when I got home, I immediately searched for it online and found it on Etsy!

Fan Girl Friday Hogwarts Honor Student

Seriously, how cute is this?! I need this for the Mom-mobile. I mean, my kid’s name is Hermione so its perfect, right?

 

And speaking of the magical world of HP, JoAnn’s Fabrics has recently acquired some new Potter prints!

Fan Girl Friday Harry Potter Fabric

AHH! Excuse me while I go spend an unholy amount of Sickles on this fabric…

 

You guys know I’m a HUGE fan of Friends. I quote it at least once a day and I’ve watched the entire series all the way through probably a dozen times. So when I saw this, I got all floopy!

Fan Girl Friday Friends Candle

There’s a Kickstarter campaign to help a candle maker start his business including a line of Friends inspired aromatherapy candles! The “Ross” is called “Pivot! Pivot! Pivot!” (totally fitting). I really hope the “Monica” is called “Monana”.

 

You know when you travel and you consider your favorite destination your second home? That’s how I feel about London. And I think I need to go back for a fourth time, because the one and only Sir Ian McKellen is going to be riding around a double decker!

Fan Girl Friday Sir Ian McKellen hosting bus tours of London

Yep, in celebration of the British Film Institute’s Shakespeare on Film program (which was started by McKellen) Gandalf himself will be serving as a tour guide, showing tourists filming locations from his film Richard III. According to Radio Times, the white wizard said:

“I always thought it might be fun to take a bus tour around the sites of Richard III. You would watch snippets of the film and then arrive at the actual location,” [McKellen] said. “I want to be the tour leader.”

Let’s pack our bags, people!

 

Happy fangirling!

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s our first FGF of the New Year! Woot, woot! I have scoured the interwebs and found some delightfully dorky treats to get your year started off right!

 

What’s the ONE thing that could make Legos better? I mean, besides making it pain-free to step on one. Why, having a custom-built Lego mini fig of course!

Fan Girl Friday Print Your Face on Legos

Now you can get a Lego figurine with YOUR face on it! Through a company on Etsy called Funky 3D Faces, you can have a custom, 3-D printed Lego head to attach to any Lego figurine you want! That means you could place your head on the new Doctor Who mini fig and walk around inside the TARDIS! A dream come true!

 

While I was walking around Target the other day, I saw a cookbook that I absolutely need!

Fan Girl Friday Nerdy Nummies

Rosanna Pansino—an internet chef!—has released her first book filled with geeky goodies to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth! Recipes include: robot cake pops, geode candy cupcakes, and much more! The different chapters are: Math and Science, Space, Sci-Fi and Fantasy, Gaming, Tech and Web, and Geeky Treats!

 

One of my goals this year is to pick up a new hobby. I feel like everyone in my family has got a “thing”. My mom crochets, my sister bakes, my other sister sews, and my dad can build anything. Me? I can offer sarcastic comments and movie quotes. Something I think I’d really like is embroidery. Mostly because I saw this on Pinterest and I want to make them all! Luckily, Perpetual Kid has me covered!

Fan Girl Friday Embroidery Kit

How cute is this “paper” embroidery kit?! I think I’d do okay with this since it already has lines on it—ha!

 

 

Y’all, this next one hit me in the feels. Before we found out that Huff the Babe was a boy, we called him “Peanut”. I’m thinking I should ask Huff the Hubs for this as my “push present”:

Fan Girl Friday Peanut Necklace

Isn’t it adorable? This legume lovely is only $12.99 and would be an adorable accessory to any outfit!

I was not a jock in high school. I’ve never been into sports, really. There was a brief moment in junior high when I thought I would play basketball but then I went to try-outs, saw all of the tall athletic girls that looked like they should be in high school, got scared and went home to watch Tiny Toon Adventures. But after a friend showed me these jackets, I think I want to rethink the whole “anti-jock” stance:

Harry Potter Varsity Jackets

How awesome are these Hogwarts house varsity jackets?! I desperately want one! They’re on sale by Etsy seller Rarity’s Boutique! They are handmade and made to order! You pick out the color scheme and lettering you want on your jacket! They’re a little too rich for my blood, but maybe if I try out for the Gryffindor Quidditch team I’ll be able to score one…?

 

Earlier this week, fanboys and fangirls alike were squealing with delight when the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer hit the interwebs. Haven’t seen it yet? (What have you been doing?!) No worries, here it is:

 

One of my favorite movies of all time is the 80’s classic, Pretty In Pink starring Molly Ringwald and John Cryer. I absolutely fell in love with Cryer’s Duckie Dale and wanted to find one of my own. The adorable John Cryer stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden this week and did something AMAZINGLY awesome. They recreated his famous scene for P.I.P.! Check out the hilarity:

 

My best mate has a little girl named River who recently fell in love with the geektacular goodness that is Doctor Who. It makes me wish that other kids would be exposed to the sci-fi show! Well, my wish is coming true thanks to the House of Mouse!

doctor who on disney

That’s right, folks, Disney XD is going to start running DW! The premiere is Saturday, June 13th! And, much to my happiness, they will be running series 2—4! That’s right—the David Tennant seasons! Woo! So set your DVR’s for your littles and get ready to introduce them to all of time and space!

Fan Girl Friday Button

Happy Friday, fangirls (and fanboys)! I’ve got a collection of geeky goodies that is sure to make your weekend great—even though we have to spring forward. Womp, womp.

 

You guys know that I went through a HUGE nail art phase. I have since put my polish away (having a kid and zero time on your hands will do that to ya) but after seeing these, I may need to rethink my bare nails:

freaks and geeks nails

It’s the cast of the cult classic, Freaks and Geeks! Aren’t these AWESOME?!

 

Between my sister and I, there are probably about 75 mugs in the kitchen cabinets. I don’t necessarily need any more…but I would love to invest in this one from Etsy store, DareWare!

silence mug

This shop has a TON of Doctor Who-themed accessories and toys! Check it out!

 

Huff the Hubs’ new favorite animated movie, Big Hero 6 just came out on DVD! I may need to get him this little cutie for his desk!

baymax vinyl pop

As if Baymax could get any cuter, Vinyl Pop comes out with this figurine! (He may be cuter than the Adipose one!)

 

I told you a few weeks ago that Emma Watson is going to playing Belle in Disney’s live-action feature of Beauty and the Beast. Well now, we have our Beast!

dan stevens as the beast

That’s right; the late husband of Mary Crawley is leaving Britain for provincial France! AND! We have our Gaston!

 

Old Man Winter seems to be moving out of the Sooner State this weekend. Its going to be the perfect weather to go read outside, Rory Gilmore-style. And what better way to tote your books than with this beautiful book bag (see what I did there?).

messenger book bag

This messenger-style bag is big enough to hold at least four books AND your laptop!

 

Happy Fangirling!
